Sugar Land Rotary Making a Difference in our Community by honoring first responders at our annual Fall Classic Fundraiser on Sept. 23!
 
Our hearts are filled with sadness about the recent devastation in Texas and in the Houston area due to Hurricane Harvey. At the same time, we are so grateful for those who are first responders and neighbors who continue to reach out to help those with tremendous needs. To be able to support Sugar Land Rotary Charities, we will hold our Fall Classic Fundraiser on Saturday, September 23 honoring first responders.
On June 21, Sugar Land Rotary installed a new slate of officers for 2017-18 that includes Jim Munnell, President; Margie Connelly, President-Elect; Rebecca Deurlein, Vice-President, Lerleen Hawkins, Secretary; Raleigh Bailes, Jr., Treasurer; Sergeant-at-Arms, Tabb Dye, and Rick Smith, Past-President. The newly installed Rotary president, Jim Munnell, thanked all of the club members and especially Rick Smith who served as president the past year. Under Smith's leadership, the club received an award as the No. 1 Medium-sized Club in District 5890.
At the recent installation ceremony, prestigious awards presented included:
